If you want to make your own photo into an image of an iPhone XS with your photo on it (like in Apple's ads), here's how:

Here's an experiment in using Portrait mode for an object to produce a bokeh effect.

(This is a half loaf of fresh-baked bread.)

Here's another experiment with the Portrait setting on an iPhone XS.
This time I did a little tweaking of the apparent aperture, which affects the amount of background blurring, or bokeh. I did this after taking the photo. It's kind of magic to be able to adjust the bokeh like this.

I also used one of the suggestions in several of Apple's How To videos and other materials, which is to get very low and even to turn the iPhone upside down to get the lens right down near the ground (sand in this case). A very low camera angle is, by the way, also a famous video technique used by famed Japanese director Yasujirō Ozu, who shot many interior scenes as if from the point of view of a person sitting on a cushion on the floor, a position common at the time the films were set. There's also a famous scene in Citizen Kane where they had to cut a hole in a concrete floor to get the the tripod low enough.


This rock sculpture was shot at the Mouth of the Elwha River. The rock appeared to just be carefully balanced, and we estimate about 12-14 inches high. I didn't want to disturb it.
